Default Acuity and location matching

1) I have modeled 6 tracks (tracks 4-6 are emergency cases), the last one PCI6 has the highest acuity (assuming that the number is for ranking and it makes no difference if it is 3 or 100). Secondly I have assigned increasing higher values for Priority of Resource Requests for these last 3 tracks. Why do patients with lower priorities and acuity get selected first where the PCI6 patient waits 2 h for treatment?
2) In another situation I observe that (see Picture) 2 MDs are in one room, although I use for this step location matching based on resource destination how can this happen?

Hi Peter,

would you be able to post or at least email your model?
That would make it easier for us to track what is going wrong.

Thanks and best wishes
